Textile design: stylised daisies: purple and pink

RU CRE MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928) Mackintosh's textile designs were inspired by plant forms and based on highly stylised motifs derived in particular from tulips, chrysanthemums and daisies. He experimented with form and vivid colours to produce more abstract designs. This design was produced during the years the Mackintoshes were living in London, 1915-23.
